Apple & Banana Muffins1 min read

Reading Time: 1 minute

For those of you who are looking for a nice baked treat here is a quick & easy muffin. Another great one for the school lunchbox. They freeze well…..but if you leave them on the bench for long they will be gone in a flash!!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon coconut flour ( or 2 1/4 cups almond meal)
  • 4 omega 3 enriched eggs
  • 1 apple finely chopped (Granny Smith apple is nice)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp bicarb soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

INSTRUCTIONS

    1. Pre heat oven to 175 C
    2. Peel and mash the banana in large mixing bowl
    3. Finely chop apple & add to banana
    4. Add all other ingredients and mix by hand. The batter will not be super thick, but more like a cake batter.
    5. Using a bit more coconut oil, grease a muffin tin. Fill the tins about 3/4 of the way full.
    6. Bake for 17-20 minutes.
    7. You will know they are done when you can insert a toothpick into the middle of a muffin and it comes out clean.  Delicious served hot out of the oven with some butter melted on top. (That’s our yummy home made butter in the picture!!) If you eat them all at once, don’t blame me… Makes approximately 16 muffins.
  • Notes: I chopped the apple in the Thermomix and set it aside prior to doing the rest of the recipe.Put all the ingredients except the fruit in the Thermomix and mix on speed 6 for about 10 seconds. Add both apple and banana to bowl and mix on Reverse, speed 2 for 5 seconds.

  1. Hi Bonnie,
    Coconut flour is a great substitute for regular wheat flour in many things. But note that you don’t use the same amount as youu would wheat flour in a recipe. See my comments in the Banana Bread recipe.

    We find coconut flour in many health food stores. The price tag makes it look expensive but you only use about 1/4 cup to replace 1 cup of regular flour. I love the one from Niulife. See the Niulife Coconut oil or Kokonut Pacific links down on the right hand side of our page. They do a mail order service of a whole range of certified organic and Fair Trade Cococnut products.

  2. I just made a batch for the boys, and they’re half gone. Katie will be lucky if I can save some for after school! I changed the process a little, mostly because fast & easy is the key for me. I know it wasn’t a complex recipe, but I’m all for stream-lining where possible, plus Mr2 likes to operate the switch. I put the banana and apple in my food processor till pretty smooth, then added the rest and blitzed for a few more seconds (I used coconut flour). I let the mixture sit for about 5 minutes (because someone came to the door!) then put them in silicon muffin molds (no need to grease). Thanks for the great recipe!
